One Million Mentors

Discover the power of mentoring

One Million Mentor’s mission is to transform the process of mentoring for all in the UK. By training, recruiting and connecting a million mentors to a million young people, One Million Mentors aims to increase youth employability, support social action and help break down social barriers.

One Million Mentors is currently a project within Uprising. The idea of 1MM is rooted in the most successful aspects of the UpRising Leadership Programmes and the Fastlaners Programme, in terms of allowing people to broaden their horizons and take on leadership. Mentoring was a critical factor in enabling young people to do this.

1MM exists to support professionals to be effective mentors, by providing a convenient framework and structure. 1MM believe that by facilitating and investing in the goodwill of professionals, they can address the skills gap agenda and be an enabler of social cohesion. 1MM want to ensure that every young person in the country has access to trained mentor by right and not privilege, as they transition into adulthood.
